A 27-year-old Sparta man was referred to the Monroe County District Attorney for drug and weapons charges after a Nov. 28 traffic stop.

Shortly after 10 p.m., police identified a Dodge Stratus as registered to a person with a suspended driver’s license. Police followed the vehicle on Highway 12-16 until initiating a traffic stop near Greyhound Road. The driver was identified as Randy Alan Seekamp, who police recognized from previous contacts. The report says Seekamp had scabs and sores on his face consistent with methamphetamine use.

A search of Seekamp produced a pair of brass knuckles in his back pocket, according to the report. Police deployed a K-9 sniff of the vehicle, which reportedly led police to two small baggies with a white crystal substance, a small baggie with white residue and a syringe.

Seekamp was referred for possession of methamphetamine and carrying a concealed weapon.

Walter Glen Casey, 41, Tomah, was referred to the district attorney for multiple charges after a Nov. 30 disturbance on Lakeview Drive.

Police were notified that an intoxicated Casey left a residence shortly after 1 p.m. and was walking toward Tomah Memorial Hospital. A woman told Tomah police that Casey wanted to return to his family in South Carolina and asked for a ride to a pawn shop and then the bus depot. She said Casey changed his mind while at the pawn shop and asked for a ride to a liquor store.

The woman said she and Casey argued on the way back home and that he threw a cell phone against the dashboard and broke it and accused her of infidelity. She also said Casey slapped her in the neck with an open hand. A cab driver summoned to the residence described Casey as a “powder keg” and heard him tell the woman, “When I come back, you’ll be sorry.” The cab driver refused service due to Casey’s aggressive demeanor.

The woman reportedly produced a note in which Casey called her a “whore” and said “I will spend the rest of my life tracking you and uncovering the truth.”

Casey was located on the sidewalk near the hospital a short time later. He reportedly told police that he and the woman yelled at each other but nothing else happened. A preliminary breath test recorded a blood-alcohol level of .13.

Casey was referred for disorderly conduct, battery and intimidation of a witness.
